this boy's heart leaps up when he tl 
of it! Once no sailors had dared 
far out of sight of land lest they si 
come to the edge of the world and 
over! And now it seems as if the 
world itself was longing to move v

gallant captains and the brave sa 
who faced dangers in unknown sea

(Beneatogy 



flowed to Lake Ontario on one side and 
to the river on the other. Cut on a tree 
was 'N.B.— D.B.' ; he read Take Notice 
— Daniel Bates' and bought that land. 
The Bowen hunters who had cut the 
initials became his neighbors. He drove 
the first team of oxen over the new road 
to Mayville and built a log cabin with 
a stick and stone x chimney and a bear 
skin flap for a door."

children are: Abbie, Bird, Jane, Gansey, 
Koric, Edward Bates. Jane Bates' long 
life has been a succession of good deeds 
and of gracious gifts to others. Among 
them is the presentation of a library 
to the people of the township of Arling- 
ton, near Bangor, Mich., where her 
farmstead lies. Jane Bates' advice to the 
youngest of the line is to the effect that : 
"A kindergarten boy that's smart 

Should know his lessons all by heart ; 
Should mind his P's and quid his Q's 



And never mix his V's and U's ; 
Should see the stars on evenings clear 

That are so large, so bright, so near, 
And watch the moon take on her horns 

These lovely late October morns. 
In fact should use his big brown eyes 

To view the earth, the trees, the skies. 
So when he's seventy or more he'll have 

Of learning quite a store 
And be as young of heart and brain 

As though he were but five again."

American Genealogies 

This is a list of the genealogies of American families, published in book or 
pamphlet form, with date of publication. Most of these works that are of early 
date are now very rare. Copies of them are in most public libraries in the 
larger cities of the United States and in the libraries of historical societies. 
Copies also find their way in very small number into book auction sales and 
into the hands of dealers in second-hand books. Genealogies of recent date are 
generally procurable from the publishers. Inquiries in regard to these or any 
other genealogical works may be addressed to the editor of Genealogy.

Standish 



[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Who was Lydia Standish, who mar- 
ried John Belden, of Wethersfield, 
Conn., June 27, 1677? The place of 
marriage is not given. Stiles gave her 
as a daughter of Thomas Standish, of 
Wethersfield, but the name Lydia is not 
upon the Wethersfield records while the 
other children of Thomas are ; they are 
all mentioned in his will, but there is no 
mention of Lydia. Recent articles in 
the Hartford Times seem to disprove 
that she was a daughter of Thomas. 
Captain Miles Standish had a grand- 
daughter Lydia younger than this Lydia.

The Sutherland Family in America 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
By Katherine Scott Gottschalk 



The name Southerland, or Sutherland, 
with the two ways of spelling appears 
among the early families in both the New 
England, and the southern states. No 
doubt they were related, but have since 
grown widely apart. 

I 

Among the settlers coming over be- 
fore the Revolution was a family of 
Sutherlands, whose members settled in 
Virginia. One of that family was George 
Sutherland (1), born in Scotland in 
1761. From old deeds, and gifts of land 
it seems that he had a brother Samuel 
(1), and their father was Saunders 
[Sanders, Sandy], Sutherland. George 
Sutherland died in 1847. By deed, dated 
January 2, 1783, Saunders Sutherland 
and Martha, his wife, Samuel, and 
George Sutherland's consent given, all 
of Fluvanna county, Virginia, convey 
land to James Crudsan. See deed book 
No. 1, p. 434, Fluvanna county, Va. The 
Martha mentioned would be the second 
wife of Saunders, and stepmother to 
George, and Samuel. She was the 
daughter of Samuel Davis of Fluvanna 
county, Va. 

George Sutherland (1) settled first in 
Virginia. Shortly before the Revolution 
he moved to Carolina, enlisting from 
Caswell county, N. C, in the fall of 1775, 
serving as drummer boy for two years 



under Captain Henry Dixon, Captain 
Tilman Dixon, and Colonel Clarke, in 
the First North Carolina Regiment. On 
October 5, 1780, he enlisted again, giv- 
ing Albermarle county, Va., as his resi- 
dence, under Samuel Eddins in the ar- 
tillery and served until a short time be- 
fore the battle of York, when he was 
furloughed on account of disability. 
George Sutherland (1) married, first, a 
widow named Jane Johnson Shores, Sep- 
tember 15, 1791, in Fluvanna county, the 
Reverend William Baskett officiating; 
he married, second, Mary Herndon, 
October 18, 1822, the Reverend Isaac 
Tuckadoo officiating. There were no 
children by the second marriage. The 
children of the first marriage were: 1. 
George F., 2. Elizabeth L. (Betsy), 3. 
Richard Lee, 4. Thomas. 

Samuel Sutherland (1), brother of 
George Sutherland (1) married Judith 
Foster of Louisa county, Va., on April 
3, 1783, in Fluvanna county. They lived 
in Louisa county and in Fluvanna. 

II 

George F. Sutherland (2) died young 
and probably unmarried. He was con- 
stable in Fluvanna county in 1814. 

Elizabeth L. Sutherland, sometimes 
mentioned as Betsy Sutherland, married 
Madison Bibb, before 1835. 

Richard Lee Sutherland (2) was bom

(Senealog? 



February, 1913. 



August 8, 1798, in Fluvanna county. He 

married, first, Sarah Ann , some 

time before 1821. I believe there were 
no children by this marriage. In 1826 
he married Mary Jane Dickinson of Nel- 
son county, Va. She was the daughter 
of Thurston James Dickinson and Mary 
Martin. After the birth of their oldest 
child they moved to Missouri, settling on 
a farm seven miles north of Farming- 
ton, in St. Francois county. Here they 
lived, raising a large family, owning 
slaves and prospering. Richard Lee 
Sutherland died in 1846, and his widow 
died in 1870 at the age of 70 years. They 
had the following children: 1. Frances 
Ann, married George Evans, and moved 
to Crawford county, Mo. ; she was born 
in 1833, died in 1867 leaving children, 
Richard, William, Laura, and Lizzie. 

2. Martha Adeline, born in 1842, married 
Mr. Clay; she is living and has children. 

3. Mary M., married Clay, was born 
January 9, 1830, died December 6, 1899; 
a son, Judge J. E. Clay, lives in Farm- 
ington. 4. Thurston James, died young. 
"5. Eliza Lewis, married Revilo Nichols, 
and lived in St. Louis, having one daugh- 
ter, Martha, who married Mr. Hall. 6. 

Richard Lee, Jr., married Cordelia , 

and left a daughter Ida, who married a 
Air. Foster, and has two sons in St. 
Louis. 7. Maria Victoria, married Dr. 
H. D. Dickinson, a relative, and lived in 
West Virginia. 8. Mildred Dickinson 
Sutherland, born May 1, 1831, in St. 
Francois county, Mo., died in Rolla, Mo , 
May 7, 1864; she was the second wife 
of Judge A. Van Warmer, and left four 
children as follows: 1. Emma Jane, 
Lorn in 1853, died in 1898, married H. 
W. Cox, and had two daughters, Kath- 
erine, and Lois ; 2. Andrew, married 
Nancy Dixon of West Plains, Mo., 
daughter of Dr. J. C. B. Dixon and 
Katherine Welsh of Kentucky ; and have 
three children. Mrs. Fred. C. Lauwin of 
New York city, Dixon Van Wanner o: 
West Plains, and Mrs. Russell Cochrane 

of Springfield, Mo. : 3. Joseph Lawrence. 



married Allie Paydon of West Plains, 
Mo., and has five children, Victor, Pay- 
don, Allen, Louise and David; 4. Mary 

M., married Carmical and has one 

son, Andrew Lawrence. 

Thomas Sutherland (2), son of George 
Sutherland (1), was born in 1804 in 
Virginia and died in 1846 in Chillicothe, 
Ohio. He married Sarah Jones, who 
was of Scotch-Welsh descent, her father 
a Jones, her mother a Miss North. They 
lived in Bedford county, Va. Thomas 
Sutherland and his wife did not believe 
in slavery, and this fact caused him to 
remove with his family to Ohio. His 
children were: 1. George, 2. Martha 
Jane, who is Mrs. Parks of South 
Charleston, Ohio; 3. Thomas, 4. Eliza- 
beth, 5. William, 6. Martin, 7. Ripley, 
and 8. Abraham. 

Ill 

Thomas Sutherland (3), the third 
child of Thomas and Sarah (Jones) 
Sutherland, was born February 28, 1835, 
in Jackson, Ohio. With his father's 
family he removed to Chillicothe, Ohio, 
but on April 7, 1854, returned to Jack- 
son and remained there until his death, 
March 16, 1896. He married N. Maria 
Pickerel, February 24, 1857, in Jackson, 
and the following children were born of 
this union: 1. Alice S., wife of the 
Honorable David Davis of Cincinnati, 
Ohio; 2. Gertrude, wife of Dr. John F. 
Morgan of Ft. Collins, Colo. ; 3. Maine 
E., wife of A. L. Erwin of Jackson, 
Ohio ; 4. Stella, wife of Prof. Frank N. 
Tuillan of Ypsilanti, Mich. 

Thomas Sutherland (3) was a suc- 
cessful business man and banker in Jack- 
son, Ohio, being one of the founders of 
the Iron Bank in 1873 and its president 
at the date of his death. There are no 
sons surviving; the name Sutherland 
for this branch of that family has died 
out. 

The records of Fluvanna and Alber- 
marle counties show other Sutherlands, 
possibly relatives of Saunders, George, 
and Thomas, but not sufficient data to

Mersereau — Harrower 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Replying to Mersereau query, 393, J. 
D. M., December, 1912, evidently Joshua 
Mersereau (4) who died in Tioga, Penn., 
January 20, 1857, was the father of John, 
James and Theodore Mersereau, and also 
of Mrs. Lyman Tremaine, and of Mrs. 
Benjamin Harrower. James Mersereau 
married and had daughters, amongst 
whom was Frances Mersereau who mar- 
ried Thomas Berry, and who now is liv- 
ing in Elmira, N. Y. Address, Mrs. 
Thomas Berry, care J. W. Huston, 102 
West Water Street, Elmira, N. Y. 

John Mersereau married and his chil- 
dren and descendants are living in 
Olean, N. Y., and in Manistique, Mich. 
The inquirer might succeed in getting 
further information by addressing the 
postmaster in those places. I regret that 
I am not able to give the Christian 
names. 



Mrs. Lyman Tremaine was the mother 
of several children, among them Theo- 
dore Tremaine who is now living in 
Westfield, Tioga county, Penn., and is 
a very aged man and might give some 
information. Theodore Tremaine also 
has a brother, Julius Tremaine, whose 
son, Julius Tremaine, now lives near 
Lawrenceville, Tioga county, Penn. 

Mrs. Benjamin Harrower was the 
mother. of several children, among whom 
was Gabriel T. Harrower, who was col- 
onel of the one hundred and sixty-first 
New York volunteer infantry, during the 
civil war. Of this regiment Lewis Dar- 
ling, M.D., was the surgeon with rank 
of major, and was the grandfather of 
the author of these notes. Further in- 
formation might be obtained by address- 
ing Katherine Harrower or Antoinette 
Harrower, Lawrenceville, Penn., as they 
are children of Colonel Gabriel T. Har- 
rower and his fourth wife Helen (Park- 
hurst) Harrower. C. P. D,

Old Ledger Accounts of 1788-96 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

An old ledger of accounts, kept by Captain Prince Gardner, ship chandler, 
and merchant, in Nantucket, Mass., before 1800, reveals some interesting names 
of special value to genealogists. The accounts tell of whale oil, candles, salt, 
pepper, sugar, hemp, duck, molasses, rum, nutmegs, tea, vinegar, and other 
things sold in a ship chandler's and general store. In the old ledgers are the 
following names of customers from 1788 to 1796. All are suposed to have been

New Hampshire Epitaphs 

From the Osgoodite cemetery on Zion's 
Hill, Canterbury, N. H. 

Josiah Haines, died May 29, 1838, M 

60. 
He was a blessing to the saints 
To sinners rich and poor; 
He was a kind and worthy man 
He's gone to be no more. 
He kept the faith unto the end 
And left the world in peace 
He did not for a doctor send 
Nor for a hireling priest. 
Hannah Haines died April 26, 1828, 

M2>9. 
Here beneath three marble stones 
Sleeps the dust and rests the bones 
Of one who lived a Christian life 
'Twas Hannah Haines, Josiah's wife. 
She was a woman full of truth 
And feared God from early youth 
And priests and elders did her fight 
Because she brought their deeds to 

light. 
Here lies Phebe, wife of David Ames, 
who was a succo-urer of many and 
brother Osgood also. She died Oct. 30, 
1838, 2E 82. 

From the old cemetery at East Derry : 
"This monument secretes from sight 
the remains of Mrs. Anne Cummings, 
Relict of the late Doct. Alexander Cum- 
mings. She departed this life Novem- 
ber 16, A. D. 1770, in the eighty-sixth 
year of her age. 

She lived beloved and died lamented 
If words and actions indicates the 

heart 
With saints above she surely has a part 
As she lived so she died 
Resigned to the Divine will. 
Depending on God through his ever 
blessed son for a glorious resurrection 
and eternal life. 

Spectator, be ye also ready. 
Miss Dinah Cochran M 84, Died 1819. 
A friend to truth, a foe to vice 
She scan'd ■ man's work with optics 
nice.

And difficult to find 
A wife more just and true to trust 
There is not left behind."

The Perrys of Virginia 

During the last half of the seventeenth 
century and the first half of the eigh- 
teenth we find Micajah Perry, a man of 
great wealth, and his son Richard, en- 
gaged in the commission business in the 
city of London, England, under the firm 
name of Perry & Son. Thomas Lane, 
a contemporary of Micajah Perry in the 
seventeenth century, was also engaged 
in the commission business in the same 
city. Many of the colonists in tide- 
water Virginia consigned their tobacco 
and other produce for market to those 
commission merchants in London. It 
appears in the inventory of the estate oi 
Colonel Jos. Bridger. of Isle of Wight 
county, Va., that in 1686 Colonel Bridger 
had sent several bills of exchange to 
Micajah Perry & Son to be placed to his 
credit. In the will of Captain James 
Day, of Isle of Wight county, Va., dated 
August 10, 1700, and probated January 
9, 1701, Captain Day directed that cer- 
tain property owned by him in London 
be sold by his friends. Micajah Perry, 
Thomas Lane and Richard Perry. 

Micajah Perry had several brothers, 
sisters and other relatives in Virginia. 
Peter, Joseph, Henry and Benjamin 
Perry were contemporaries in tidewater 
Virginia in the latter part of the seven- 
teenth century. So were members of 
Phillip Perry's family. 

Peter Perry, a brother of Micajah 
Perry, settled in York county, Va. 
Joseph, Henry and Benjamin Perry be- 
longed to Phillip Perry's family, and 
from these families sprung the Perry 
families of North Carolina. A sister of 
Peter and Micajah Perry married a Mr. 
Lowe, and they had a son, Micajal 
Lowe, and three daughters, Susannah, 
Johanna and Mary. The names of Su- 
sannah and Mary have been family 
names in the Perry families for many 
generations since. Micajah Lowe and 
his wife, Sarah, lived in Charles City 
county, Va.. and left issue. 

William Edwards, who served in the 



house of burgesses, from Surrey county, 
Va., in 1707, first married the daughter 
of Colonel Benj. Harrison, and after her 
death, married, second, the daughter of 
Micajah Lowe, leaving several children 
by this marriage. Micajah Lowe, in his 
will, probated in 1703, refers to his uncle, 
Micajah Perry, of London, and appoints 
him one of his executors. 

During the seventeenth century Mica- 
jah Perry was the most conspicuous 
merchant in England in supplying the 
planters and colonists in Virginia and 
North Carolina with goods of all kinds 
in exchange for their tobacco and other 
products. He was the banker and com- 
mission merchant of those people, and 
was often the executor of those leaving 
large estates. The new settlers had un- 
bounded confidence in his ability and 
honesty of character. He was a frequent 
visitor to the colonies and was well 
known there. Often he was sent to 
America as the duly commissioned agent 
of the crown to advise and negotiate with 
the colonists. 

Among the largest contributors to the 
original endowment of William and 
Mary College in Virginia were Micajah 
Perry, Thomas Lane and Richard Perry, 
each giving fifty pounds for that pur- 
pose. 

Micajah Perry served as alderman of 
the city of London in the latter part of 
the seventeenth century and later as 
lord mayor of London during the reis:n 
of William and Mary. He died in 1721, 
and his mercantile business was contin- 
ued by his grandsons, Micajah Perry and 
Phillip Perry.

Sweet 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Thomas Sweet, son of Benjamin 
Sweet, was born in the "Redstone coun- 
try," Pennsylvania, West Augusta dis- 
trict, not many miles from Fort Dun- 
more, now Pittsburg, about 1760-1765. 
In the year 1782 he was a private in 
Captain David Reed's company of the 
Westmoreland county battalion of Penn- 
sylvania militia. This company was in 
Colonel Crawford's Sandusky expedi- 
tion against the Indians, where Colonel 
Crawford was captured and burned at 
the stake in the presence of Simon Girtv, 
the renegade. Thomas Sweet married in 
Pennsylvania in 178 — , Mary Neely. In 
1789 the family moved to Mason county, 
Ky., now Fleming county, where 
Thomas died in 1828. 

Thomas and Mary (Neely) Sweet had 
children as follows: 

I. Benjamin Sweet, born Decem- 
ber 25, 1786, an obituary notice says in 
Woodford county, Ky., but as that was 
the year before the first settlement in 
Stockton Station in 1787, it was a mis- 
take, as the family of his father moved 
in the year 1789. He married Mary A. 
Holmes in Fleim'ng countv, Ky., Novem- 
ber 20, 1806, moved to Ohio in 1811 and 
settled in Champaign county near Urba- 
na; died in Middlebury, Champaign 
county, Ohio, October 19, 1845 ; 
eight children. 

II. Samuel Sweet, born in Fleming 
county. He went to the Galena lead 
mines in southwest Missouri and there 
is no further trace of him. 

III. Joseph N. Sweet, born in Flem- 
ing county, in 1790, was a soldier in the 
war of 1812 and lost a leg, received a 
land warrant in 1855. He married Mary 
Popejov near Washington Court House, 
Ohio, August 1, 1816; died in Webster, 
Scioto county, Ohio, 1870. Children. 

IV. James Sweet, born in Fleming 
county, in 1793, married Jane Hughes, 
in Fleming county, December 31, 1822; 
died near Tilton, Fleming county, in 
1873; had children. 



V. John Sweet, born in Fleming 
county, in 179 — , married in Fleming 
county, July 23, 1824, Rosanah Hughes; 
died near Tilton ; had children. 

VI. Joshua Sweet, born in Fleming 
county, married in Fleming county, 
March 6, 1822, Hannah Beckner; had 
children. 

VII. Mary Sweet, born in Fleming 
county, married Aquila Jones. 

The records of West Augusta court, 
held at Fort Dunmore, Penn., dated Feb- 
ruary 25, 1775, show that "On motion of 
Henry Heath it is Ord that Silas Dexter 
Gabriel Cox Richd McMahon Benjamin 
Sweet Robt Henderson view the most 
convenient way from Ft. Dunmore to 
Henry Heath's they being first sworn 
and make a report of conveniences and 
inconveniences to the next court." An- 
drewHeath's plantation was on the left 
bank of the Mononcrahela river in what 
is now Allegheny county. 

In the corporation court of Staunton, 
Augusta county, Va., is a book contain- 
ing the names of military men of Augus- 
ta county of the colonial days and this 
shows that William Sweet was a member 
of Captain Francis Kirkley's company 
in April, 1767; also that Leonard Sweet 
was a member of Captain James Tate's 
company. 

Can any one give the nativity of these 
three men, Benjamin, William and Leon- 
ard Sweet. Were they descendants of 
the Rhode Island or Virginia immigrants 
of that name? Can any one give the 
exact date of the birth of Thomas Sweet, 
who married Mary Neely ; also the date 
of his marriage and the name of the 
place in Pcnnsvlvania where the Neelv 
family lived? [395] R. R. S.

Gladding— Wilmot 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Hannah Gladding, born , married 

January 3, 1785, in Cheshire, Conn., Eli- 
sha Wilmot of the Revolution, son of 
Asa and Sarah (Johnson) Wilmot. Eli- 
sha and Hannah (Gladding) Wilmot had 
children as follows: 1. Electa Wilmot, 
married Tillotson Terrell in 1804, and 
they were among the first settlers of 
Ridgeville, Ohio, in the Connecticut 
Western Reserve, in 1810; 2. Betsey 
Wilmot; 3, Ella (or Elihu) Wilmot, mar- 
ried Lucretia Blair ; 4, Silas Wilmot, born 
October 19, 1790, married Chloe Tyler in 
August, 1810, emigrated to Eaton 
township, Ohio, Connecticut Western 
Reserve, in October, 1810, where they, 
with two others, were the first white set- 
tlers ; 5. Ebenezer Wilmot, married, 
first, Harriet Pardy, and second, Phoebe 
Matson; 6. Elisha Johnson Wilmot, 
born in 1793, in Wallingford, Conn., 
married Jerusha Bright in June, 1824; 

7. Hannah Wilmot, married Elias Root ; 

8. Esther Wilmot, married, first, Harry 
Blair, and second, Thomas Walden, and 
settled early in Portage county, Ohio ; 

9. Cleora Wilmot, married Jennings 

and settled early in Portage county, 
Ohio. 

Who were the parents of Hannah 
Gladding? Her birth is not recorded 
in Cheshire, Conn. None of the names 
of her children are Wilmot names, ex- 
cept Elisha Johnson. Silas Gladding and 



Ebenezer Gladding of Middlesex county, 
Conn., are given in the 1790 census. 
They were probably related to Hannah 
Gladding, as she named two of her chil- 
dren Silas and Ebenezer. Who can tell 
me anything of their ancestry or of Han- 
nah's? Would be glad to correspond 
with any one working along Gladding 
lines. [402] D. W. S.

American Genealogies 

This is a list of the genealogies of American families, published in book or 
pamphlet form, with date of publication. Most of these works that are of early 
date are now very rare. Copies of them are in most public libraries in the 
larger cities of the United States and in the libraries of historical societies. 
Copies also find their way in very small number into book auction sales and 
in to the hands of dealers of second-hand books. Genealogies of recent date are 
generally procurable from the publishers. Inquiries in regard to these or any 
other genealogical works may be addressed to the editor of Genealogy.

Randall 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Can any one tell me whether Priscilla 
Randall, born to Silas and Priscilla 
(Simmons) Randall, of Rochester, 
Mass., was the same Priscilla Randall 
who married Simeon Randall, probably 
a relative, in 1786? Rochester had sev- 
eral Priscilla Randalls at that time, and 
for that reason I have been unsuccess- 
ful in tracing the line of my Priscilla 
Randall who married Simeon Randall. 
Priscilla being a Mayflower name, it 
is possible that a Mayflower line may 
come in here. I have all the lines of 
Simeon Randall. Would be glad to hear 
from a Randall-Simmons descendant, 
either through the columns of the Hart- 
ford, Times, or di recti v to me.

Memoranda of the Clemens Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 



In the first attempts to construct a 
genealogy of the Clemens family in 
America, considerable data of a frag- 
mentary nature has been gathered for 
the first time. Some of this data is 
printed here for the benefit of those 
members of the family, who heretofore 
have been unable to obtain facts regard- 
ing their early ancestors prior to the year 
1800. Four distinct lines came to Amer- 
ica from Germany, from Holland, from 
Ireland, and from England respectively. 
Those from Ireland and England settled 
in New England and Virginia, and those 
from Holland and Germany in Pennsyl- 
vania and New York. The marriage rec- 
ords of Pennsylvania, here given, prior 
to 1800, are unusually complete.

probable placing of the wife of John (2)

Owings and Owens of Maryland 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

The earliest trace of the Owens and 
Owings in Maryland is found in the 
Jainl records in xAnnapolis. Grants of 
land are recorded to Richard Owens in 
1654 and to John Owens in 1670. 

Samuel Owings, whose name appears 
in the earliest record of St. Thomas's 
parish, was the son of Richard and Ra- 
chel (Beale) Owings, and was born 
April 1, 1702, in a little house part stone 
and part log, tw r o rooms below and two 
above, located in Green Spring Valley. 
This cottage was occupied from 1700 
until 1780 by successive generations of 
Owings, being enlarged from time to 
time. It passed in 1870 into the hands 
of the Ashland Iron Company. Samuel 
Owings married January 1, 1729, Urath 
Romdall, daughter of Thomas and Har- 
riett Romdall. Urath was born January 
1, 1713, and was married on her six- 
teenth birthday. The family record, as 
contained in Urath Romdall's birth, is a 
model of neatness. It tells not only the 
date but also the hour and day of the 
week when each of the eleven children 
were born. Issue: 

Beale, May 19, 1731. 

Samuel, August 17, 1733. 

Rachel, May 2, 1736.

Rebecca, October 21, 1748. 

Richard, July 16, 1749. 

Hannah, January 27, 1750. 

Urath Owings married Benjamin F. 
Lawrence, and Thomas Owings married 
Ruth Lawrence. 

Samuel Owings, senior, was one of 
the commissioners (under the act of the 
Assembly in 1742) to select and pur- 
chase the site of St. Thomas's church, 



He was one of His Majestv's justices. 
He died April 6, 1775. ' I. M. S. 



Burtner 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

John Burtner was a native of the 
township of Clinton, Butler county, 
Penn. He had the following children : 
Jacob, Philip, William, Daniel, Andrew, 
Barbara, born in 1797, died in 1882; 
Betsy, Catherine, born in 1805, died in 
1892; Polly and Christina. The parents 
of John Burtner came to Butler county 
from Berks county, Penn., late in the 
eighteenth century, and settled on two 
hundred acres of land, now known as 
the Krumpe farm, in Clinton township. 
The family is of German origin and its 
members were among the organizers of 
the German Lutheran church in Saxon- 
burg. I want the name of the wife of 
John Burtner, dates of birth, marriage 
and death about 1828, of John Burtner ; 
names of father and mother.

Underwood of Portsmouth, N. H. Mrs. 
LTnderwood had two daughters, one of 
whom was married to Harry Burton, the 
other to Mr. Symes. The children of

Marsh 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I think my Marsh line is as follows, 
and if any one can give me anything to 
the contrary, or can give any additional 
data of these lines, I will appreciate it 
very much. The line begins with John 

and Sarah Marsh of Boston. 

Wanted their dates. They had three 
sons in Boston: John, born August 29, 
1669; Joseph, born February 3, 1670-1; 
Bartholomew, born July 3, 1673. Joseph 

Marsh, son of John and Sarah 

Marsh, married, in Boston, March 2, 
1692-3, Ann Thurogood. Wanted her 
dates, parentage and ancestry, and the 
full record of their children. Presumably 
one of their children was John Marsh, 



afterward known as Deacon John Marsh 
of Douglas, Mass. He was born August 
2, 1696, and died March 25, 1769. He 
married, October 6, 1719, Martha Harts- 
horn. Wanted, her dates, and her par- 
entage and ancestry, and full record of 
her children. 

Evidently Deacon John and Martha 
(Hartshorn) Marsh were the parents of 
Joseph Marsh who married in Mendon, 
Mass., April 26, 1759, Deborah Staples, 
born June 26, 1741, daughter of Abra- 
ham Staples, Abraham (3) Sergeant. 
Abraham (2), John Staples (1), of Wey- 
mouth, Mass., and his third wife, Lydia 
White, daughter of Thomas and Deborah 
(Read) White. Wanted date of birth 
and death of Joseph Marsh, date of death 
of Deborah (Staples) Marsh, and a full 
record of their children, two only of 
whom are recorded in Douglas, Mass. I 
have proof that they were the parents of 
Chloe Marsh, born in Mendon, Mass., 
April 30, 1768, who married there, Oc- 
tober 6, 1786, Seth Darling, born in Men- 
don, March 21, 1764, son of Thomas and 
Rachel (White) Darling, grandson of 
Benjamin and Mehitable (White) Darl- 
ing, great grandson of Dennis and Han- 
nah (Francis) Darling, all of Mendon, 
Mass. Several children of Joseph and 
Deborah (Staples) Marsh, as did Seth 
and Chloe (Marsh) Darling, moved to 
the vicinity of Woodstock and Hartland, 
Vermont. Can some one help me with 
this line, and give me some more reliable 
data. [433] C. P. D. 



Cowen and Davis 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I have some lost people in New York 
state, that I wish to find, two generations 
back of Robert Cowen, who settled in 
Cambridge, N. Y., 1761, or 1763. And 
I have been trying to get a certain John 
Davis traced back to his New England 
home. John Davis left Saratoga, N. Y., 
in 1807. He was there in 1787, and 
probably before. [429] L. M. C.

Shipman— Large— Whittlesey 

[Contributed to GENEALOGY.] 

Regarding the Shipman family, in 
which M. O. L. B. [428] is interested, I 
can say that Judge L'Hommedieu, the 
town clerk of Deep River, Conn., an au- 
thority upon families thereabouts be- 
lieves that Edward Shipman's second 
wife was Mary Anderson. A fact which 
throws some light upon the subject, al- 
though indirectly, is that while Air. Peck 
was town clerk of Lyme (his daughter 
married a Thomas Anderson, perhaps re- 
lated to Mary), although the records read 
Anderson, as do the gravestones, he in- 
dexed all entries under Andrus or An- 
drews. Three generations of descendants 
of Thomas Anderson called themselves 
by that name. What reason Mr. Peck 
had for this is a mystery. 

Edward Shipman and his daughter, 
Hannah, settled the estate of John Large 
of Haddam in 1691. 

John Whittlesey was guardian of 
Phebe and John Large, children of John 
Large of Haddam. He also bequeathed 
to Phebe, 'daughter of my wife,' a chest 
belonging to her grandfather Large. His 
account book in 1690 contains the en- 
tries, "Hannah Larg was born in the 
year 1686, in November. John Larg was 
born in February, 1690. Hannah Larg 
came to life with me June in the year 
1697. Martha came to life with me 11th. 
day of June 1696." H. W. B.

Inman 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
Can any of the readers of Genealogy 
tell me who may be interested in the In- 
man family of Rhode Island? I am de- 
sirous of obtaining* the maiden name of 
Mary, wife of Stephen Inman of 
Gloucester and Cumberland. They had 
three children, Joseph, born September 
23, 1745; Stephen, born April 19, 1750, 
and Deborah, born August 16, 1748. 
Stephen Inman, the father, died May 19, 
1750, and his widow married March 4, 
1752, Lieutenant Joseph Strecter of 
Wrentham, Mass. I have reason to be- 
lieve that Mary's maiden name may have 
been Barton, or that she was descended 
from that family. Any information of 
her or of the parentage of her husband, 
Stephen Inman, with date and place of 
his birth and marriage, will be accept-

Skidmore 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

In the Reynolds-Clements article by E. 
M. C. r-421], I assume that the date. "Oc- 
tober, 1673, given for marriage of Eliza- 
beth Skidmore is meant for 1763. Pre- 
sumably the John and Elizabeth Skid- 
more alluded to are John (4), who mar- 
ried Elizabeth, probably Whitehead and 
probably a descendant of Daniel White- 
head, born about 1603, died November 
16, 1668, age 65, a proprietor of Hemp- 
stead, L. I. 

If Elizabeth was a daughter of this 
couple, it is strange that she is not men- 
tioned in the will of her father, probated 
November 4, 1782. He mentions his wife, 
Elizabeth, son Whitehead (Skidmore), 
Phebe, wife of Evert Vanostrand, ^on 
Daniel and his children, son Thomas, 
granddaughter Phebe Skidmore, remain- 
der to be divided among "all my chil- 
dren," my daughter Jane Smith, my >on 
Whitehead Skidmore, my daughter 
Phebe Vannos [sic], my son John Skid- 
more, my son Thomas Skidmore and my 
son Daniel Skidmore, son Samuel Skid- 
more, already dead, his children, "my 
granddaughter Phebe is the daughter of 
my son Joseph Skidmore." Was Eliza- 



beth dead before this date? That would 
account for her omission. 

John Skidmore was the son of Sam- 
uel and Susannah (Samuel died, 

1733), he the son of John, born April 11, 
1643, died before March 6, 1681, and Su- 
sannah , he the son of Thomas. 

died, 1684, and Ellen , his second 

wife Sarah being mentioned in his will. 
Wills of John (2) and Samuel (3) are 
in the New York Historical Society Col- 
lections, 1892, p. 107, 1894, p. 101. [434.]

LINCOLNIANA 

The Boston Evening Transcript (Boston, Massachusetts), for May 7, 1913, presents the 
following: 

"Lincolniana Book Plates and Collections" is the alluring title of a little volume recently 
issued by H. Alfred Fowler, publisher of "The Biblio," of Kansas City, Mo. The book is 
the outgrowth of an attempt to describe the book plates bearing portraits of Lincoln or 
other appropriate designs associated with his name. The author, however, found the col- 
lections of Lincolniana in which these book plates were used of more interest^ than the plates 
themselves, and so Charles W. McLellan, Judd Stewart and J. B. Oakleaf have contributed 
three delightful little papers on their collections. All are veterans in the field, and it is only 
to (be regretted that similar descriptions could not be given of the collections of Hon. Daniel 
Fish, J. W. Burton and the late prince of Lincoln collectors, Major W. H. Lambert of 
Philadelphia. The accounts of the collections are by no means catalogues; they are frag- 
mentary, discursive, written as one talks to a friend about his books — beginning with show- 
ing a few things and ending by talking about fellow collectors. It does make one a trifle 
envious, however, to find Charles Woodbury McLellan describing some of his Lincoln 
autographs thus: 

"The earliest specimen of his writing that I obtained was a page of his copybook writ- 
ten in 1826, when he was 17 years of age; and from 1838 to 1865, twenty-seven years, I have 
something written by him each year excepting the year 1854. Together with these, I have 
accumulated quite an interesting collection of letters written to Mr. Lincoln or about him." 

Will some kind gentleman who has a Lincoln letter of the date of 1854 send it to Mr. 
McLellan? It surely will be appreciated. For, as Judd Stewart writes: 

"But, after all, the pleasure of pursuit and acquisition is of no worth compared to the 
friendships formed through my collecting. What a pleasure to receive, some morning 
when business is all askew, a letter from a 'hated rival,' congratulating one on a new 
acquisition, or, as sometimes happens, finding in the mail with the compliments of some 
other collector ('hated rival') an item that you want and have despaired of getting!" 

And so J. B. Oakleaf writes that the acquaintance he has formed through his hobby 
is really worth more to him than his collection. To the new collectors he extends the hand 
of Lincoln fellowship, "with my heart in it, knowing that what they do, will not only be 
of service to themselves, 'but to the community in which they live, and of benefit to their 
friends." 

Mr. Fowler's little book should be owned by every Lincoln collector. It has a hand- 
somely engraved titlepage with a Lincoln portrait, and the Lincoln bookplates of Judd 
Stewart, H. Alfred Fowler and J. B. Oakleaf are used to embellish the text. A blank Lin- 
coln bookplate is laid in loosely to be put in the owner's copy. The printing is all that 
could be desired. 

The volume contains an especially engraved portrait titlepage by A. N. Macdonald, and 
especially engraved portrait 'Ex libris Lincolniana' within the cover and upon which the 
owner may inscribe his name, an original impression of the Lincolniana bookplate of Mr. 
Judd Stewart, and another engraved plate impression as well as other illustrations. 

Edition limited to five hundred copies; bound in boards. 

Price, $2.50. 

Specimen pages will be sent upon application.

Silliman — Sterling

D. S. A. (27 Jan. 1912, page 30) asks 
christian name of Abigail, wife of Dan-

or second wife. Cannot some Silliman

Howard 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Note: Howards of Vermont. Many of 
the "Howards" in Jamaica, Windham 
County, Vt., and vicinity, are probably 
descendants of original settlers named 
"Hayward" from eastern Massachusetts. 
The name very probably was changed 
from original spelling because the names 
as pronounced in Windham County, Vt., 
sound very much alike. J. E. B.

The Garbutt Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
By Orrin Peer Allen. 

John and Mercy (Cady) Garbutt were visor in 1821. 
among the early settlers in Monroe 
county, N. Y., and leaders in promoting 
its affairs. 

I. 

John Garbutt, son of Zachariah and 
Phebe (Nairn) Garbutt was born in Eng- 
land in 1780. He migrated from Wins- 
ton, England, in the fall of 1798, having 
his parents with him ; they landed at 
New York city, and located first near 
Ossining, N. Y., where they remained 
for two years. Thence they moved on to 
Seneca where they remained for five 
years. John Garbutt had learned the 
trade of a shoemaker in England, so his 
first effort in his new home was at the 
bench in order to gain a support and to 
pay off the borrowed money necessary 
to transport himself and parents to the 
new world, which he soon accomplished. 
In 1805 he made a permanent settlement 
on Allen's Creek, now Garbutt, in the 
township of Wheatland, N. Y., where 
he became a prosperous farmer, and the 
hamlet which grew up around him took 
his name when he became a man of af- 
fairs. 

John Garbutt's ability was soon recog- 
nized by his fellow citizens. He was 
chosen to be surveyor and held many 
town offices in turn; was supervisor of 
Caledonia in 1820, before the division 
of the town, and Wheatland's first super- 



He represented Monroe 
county in the New York Legislature in 
1829. He was one of the founders of 
the Farmers' library, buying and bring- 
ing home the first books for the same. 
He served in the war of 1812 in Capt. 
Levi Lacy's Company. He died in 
Garbutt, March 13, 1855, and is buried 
in the Garbutt cemetery. 

John Garbutt married Mercy Cady, 
daughter of Rufus and Lydia (Wheeler) 
Cady, born in Dalton, Mass., March 27, 
1788, and died in Garbutt, December 13, 
1848. She was descended from Nicho- 
las Cady of Watertown, Mass., 1645, 
through James (2), John (3), William 
(4), William (5), her father Rufus 
(6). She removed from Dalton, Mass., 
with her parents in 1809 and settled near 
the present village of Garbutt in the 
township of Wheatland, Monroe coun- 
ty, N. Y., where she married John Gar- 
butt. 

John and Mercy (Cady) Garbutt had 
ten children, born in Garbutt. 

1. Lydia Garbutt, date of birth not 
given, married Jefferson Edmunds. 
They had three children, Zachariah, 
Eddy M., and Milton Edmunds, each 
of whom died young. 

?. Minerva Garbutt, born Aoril 17, 
1312, died March 6, 1813.

linois, no further data of him.

I wish the following precautions taken 
concerning this paper. Leet it be spread 
out and pressed smooth between two flat 
surfaces so as to take out" the folds in- 
tirely. Then let some paste be made 
strengthened by a small infusson of glue. 
Leet it be brushed over with that paste 
and laid neatly on a smoth board. Leav 
a little moulding or bead around the edge 
of the board, by way of ornament, and 
hang it up in your parlor. 

Then let your children view it at times 
and while they revere the names of their 
ancestors, inculcate in them a high and 



noble spirit to maintain and perpetuate 
the dignity of the family. 

I presume that the times of the births 
and deaths of my fathers, brothers and 
sisters might be ascertained as also the 
time of the births of my brothers and 
sisters for which I have accordingly left 
blanks.

Doroney 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
Capt. John Doroney, born August 20, 
1753, son of William Doroney, an emi- 
grant from Scotland, was in service dur- 
ing the Revolution, having enlisted March 
14, 1776 in Captain John Nelson's Com- 
pany of independent riflemen attached 
to Col. D'Hass' first Pennsylvania bat- 
talion. Afterward, he was first lieuten- 
ant of Captain John Reed's Company, 
of the Eighth battalion of Cumberland 
county militia; Col. Abram Smith. He 
married, first, June 5, 1782, Ruhannah 
Stockdale, of Baltimore county, who 
died August 11, 1795, leaving three chil- 
dren: Edmund, born February 7, 1787; 
William, born May 11, 1789; Rebecca, 
born September 26, 1791, married 
Robert Lyons and had Ruhannah and 
Robert. 

Captain Doroney married, second, De- 
cember 26, 1797, Mary Douglass, who 
died January 8, 1799, leaving one child, 
Mary, born November 1, 1798, died

White-Thornton 



[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
Will someone interested in the Thorn- 
ton family, tell me anything concerning 
the parentage and ancestry, with dates, 
of Mehitable Thornton who married in 
Boston, Mass., December, 1687, Thomas 
White. He evidently was the son of 
Captain Joseph and Lydia (Rogers) 
White, and a grandson of the first 
Thomas White of Weymouth, Mass. My 
ancestress Mehitable (White) Darling, 
wife of Benjamin Darling of Mendon, 
Mass., was a daughter of Thomas and 
Mehitable (Thornton) White of Men- 



don, Mass., and I am very anxious to 
learn something concerning her Thorn- 
ton ancestors, if Mehitable Thornton 
proves to be the mother of Mehitable 
(White) Darling. Any information on 
this point will be very much appreciated. 
Mehitable (White) Darling was born 
January 22, 1689, in Mendon, Mass., and 
married there June 11, 1708, Benjamin 
Darling, son of the first Denice and 
Hannah (Francis) Darling of Braintree 
and Mendon. Wanted also the date and 
place of the death of Mehitable (White) 
Darling. She must have died before 
1760, as Benjamin Darling married sec- 
ond in April, 1760, to widow Susannah, 
daughter of Benoni Benson, and widow 
first of a Mr. Thayer (wanted his name), 
and second of Aaron White, son of 
Joseph and Prduence (Smith) White. 
Wanted also the date and place of the 
death of Susannah. C. P. D. 



Day-Dumbleton 

[Contributed to Gi.nealogy.] 
Wanted the names of the parents and 
their ancestry, of Mary Dumbleton, who 
married July 22, 1697, Samuel Day of 
West Springfield, Mass. He was born 
May 20, 1671, and died October 19, 1729, 
aged fifty-eight. His widow Mary died 
May 17, 1759. Wanted the date and 
place of her birth. It is said that she 
was the daughter of John and Lydia 
(Leonard) Dumbleton of Springfield, 
Mass., but I would like this verified, 
together with the ancestry of both her 
father and mother, with a list of the 
children, with dates, in each generation 
back of and including Alary Dumbleton.

Benson— White — Staples 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Can anyone interested in the Benson 
family of Mention, Mass., tell me 
whether Benoni Benson, born in 1724, 
son of Benoni and Sarah (Thayer) Ben- 
son, married, in 1742, Abigail Staples, 
born October 12, 1729, Mendon, Mass., 
daughter of Abraham 4 Staples (Abra- 
ham 3 , Abraham 2 , John 1 ), and first wife 
Abigail (Taft) Staples. It is said that 
the above Abigail (Staples) Benson had 
a son when she was only thirteen years 
old, but I have record of this marriage as 
(probably occurring in Mendon) Janu- 
ary 30, 1752, at which time Abigail 
Staples would have been 23 years of 
age. 

It seems to be claimed by some that 
Benoni Benson, Jr^ son of Benoni and 
Sarah (Thayer) Benson, married Abi- 
gail White, daughter of Joseph and Pru- 
dence (Smith) White, of Uxbridge, 
Mass., and that after the death of Abi- 
gail (White), Benoni Benson, her hus- 
band, married 2d to Abigail Staples. If 
this is the case, Abigail (White) must 
have died before 1752. The above Pru- 
dence (Smith) White was the wife of 
Joseph 4 White, son of Joseph 3 (Capt. 
Joseph 2 , Thomas 1 White, of Weymouth, 
Mass.), and Lydia (Copeland) White, 
and after the death of Joseph 4 White, 
in 1737, Prudence, his widow, married, 
in Mendon, Mass., September 3, 1739, to 
Benoni Benson, of Mendon, Mass. He 
was the son of Joseph 2 (wife's name 
wanted) Benson, and grandson of John 1 
and Mary ( ) Benson, of Hingham, 

Mass. 

Benoni 3 Benson, yeoman of Mendon, 
Mass., married first (date wanted) 
Sarah Thayer, daughter of Josiah and 
Sarah (Bass) Thayer, and granddaugh- 
ter of Ferdinand Thayer, of Braintree, 
Mass. Wanted, dates of this family 
and full record of children. 

Benoni 3 Benson died in 1761, and is 
buried in the Chestnut Hill Cemetery, 
Mendon, Mass. His widow, Prudence 
(Smith) White Benson, made her will 



January 14, 1785, in which she bequests 
to the heirs of her beloved daughter 
Abigail Benson the same amount which 
she bequests to her other daughters, Pru- 
dence Albee and Rachel Darling. Men- 
tions her sons Joseph White, Peter 
White, heirs of son Aaron White, de- 
ceased, Moses White, Ebenezer White; 
also mentions son-in-law, Benoni Benson 
to be executor. 

The Uxbridge and Mendon records 
give the above children to Joseph and 
Prudence (Smith) White, and also 
Sarah, born November 8, 1724, Men- 
don ; who is not mentioned in her 
mother's will. What became of her? 

The above Aaron White, son of 
Joseph and Prudence, was born May 
22, 1717, in Mendon, Mass. According 
to the Mendon records, he married, De- 
cember 15, 1739, Susannah Thayer, of 
Mendon, but he is called of Uxbridge. 
She was the daughter of Benoni Benson 
— Thayer evidently for her first hus- 
band- Wanted, r^is name, dates of par- 
entage. Susannah married, second, 
Aaron White, who died before April 17, 
1760, at which time, in Mendon, Mass., 
she married her third husband, Benjamin 
Darling, gentleman of Mendon, whose 
first wife was Mehitable White, daughter 
of Thomas and Mehitable (Thornton) 
White, granddaughter of Capt. Joseph 
and Lydia (Rogers) White, and great 
granddaughter of the first Thomas 
White, of Meyenorrh, Mass. 

Now, then, Joseph White, husband of 
Prudence, died in 1737, and his property 
was divided between his widow and 
children, Joseph, Peter, Aaron, Moses, 
Ebenezer, Abigail, Sarah, Prudence and 
Rachel. I have wondered if Sarah did 
not die young, as she is not mentioned 
in the will of her mother, Prudence 
Benson, in 1785, and did above Abigail 
White marry Benoni Benson, or did the 
widow Prudence (Smith) White Benson, 
in speaking of her daughter, Abigail 
Benson, mean Abigail (Staples) Benson, 
wife of Benoni Benson, Jr. 



March, 1914.

In September 18, 1769, the heirs of 
Abraham Staples were widow Lydia 
(she was Lydia White, daughter of 
Thomas (Joseph, Capt. Joseph, Thomas) 
and Deborah (Read) White) and chil- 
dren Abraham, Nahor, Abigail Benson, 
Lydia Holbrook, Thankful Fletcher, 
Deborah Marsh, Ruth Craggin, Chloe 
Staples. 

Could it be that Abigail Staples mar- 
ried some other Benson and that Abigail 
White married Benoni Benson, Jr., or 
did Benoni Benson, Jr., marry these two 
Abigails, Abigail White and Abigail 
Staples? C. P. D.

Hoffman-Poznanski Estates 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 
Mr. Joseph Luria, official investigator 
of the above estates, formerly a resident 
of Montclair, N. J., now at No. 135 
Broadway, Room 1109, New York City, 
is seeking the heirs of the following 
members of the "Hoffman-Poznanski" 
family. One may have assumed the name 
"Ooscher" or "Ascher". The "Hoff- 
man" are originally from Portugal, then 
some went to Bavaria, Germany, from 
there to Russian Poland, some going 
back to Germany and all parts of the 
world, including the U. S. A., some stay- 
ing in Russia, where many members of 
the family are now: 

1. George Hoffman-Poznanski (also 
called "Guedaliah," Hebrew name) or 
any assumed name, born in a small place 
called Briskkujawski, near Wloslavek, 
Russian Poland, supposed to have died 
in Transvaal, South Africa in 1844. 
George was one of the youngest sons of 
a certain "Haskell" (meaning Henri) 
Hoffman, who went from Bavaria to 
Russia. Haskell had nine children, seven 
boys and two daughters. George left 
his native place when young, after a quar- 
rel with his family who disapproved of 
his love affair with a Christian girl, whom 
he later eventually married, after having 
said to have had several children. 
He travelled, settled in Bavaria, where 
he was a brewer, then emigrated to the 
Transvaal and is supposed to have died 
there, leaving a large fortune. He is sup- 
posed to have left a will, cutting off his 
brothers and sisters ; his will was not to 
be opened until after fifty years from the 
time of his death, the 50 years having 
elapsed in 1894. The money was to go 
to the descendants of his family; how- 
ever, it cannot be paid before all the heirs 
can be traced, which Mr. Luria expects 
to do. 

Abraham, Benjamin, Hyman (in Pie- 
brew "Chain"), Rubin, Wolf, Rosie, etc., 
are some of the names of his brothers 
and sisters. Some of them kept the orig- 



inal name "Hoffman," others, for sep- 
cial reasons, changed their name into 
"Poznanski," which is equivalent to "Son 
of the Posen country." Posen in Polish 
means "Poznan." 

2. Julius Posner, or Poznanski, who 
was a "Hoffman." He may have been 
a son of Benjamin, who went to Au- 
stralia. Julius went to Africa and Au- 
stralia and is supposed to have died there 
some few years ago, also leaving a very 
large fortune. Some heirs are in this 
country (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, etc.) 

3. Ephraim Posner, or Poznanski, 
who was a Hoffman. Probably a des- 
cendent of one of George's brothers; he 
is supposed to have died in London, Eng- 
land. His heirs must also be in this coun- 
try. 

4. Moritz Posner, or Poznanski, who 
was a Hoffman, of same family. He is 
supposed to have died in this country, 
leaving a large estate. 

Mr. J. Luria, who has advertised ex- 
tensively in this country and abroad has 
so far received letters from persons 
claiming to be heirs, called "Hoffman" 
and "Posner or Poznanski," many of 
them coming from this country. Some 
are Jewish, some are Christians, because 
George is supposed to have turned to 
Christianity, although his brothers re- 
mained Hebrews. 

The persons who believe they are in- 
terested can write for more information 
to Mr. J. Luria, 135 Broadway, Room 
1109, New York City.

The Thorn Family in America 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 



My great-grandfather, John Thorn, 
came to this country sometime before 
the Revolutionary war. He was of 
Scotch-Irish descent, and a man of 
means. He settled near the center of 
Guilford Co., North Carolina, and mar- 
ried Miss Ellenor Kerr. If I have been 
correctly informed, he was accompanied 
to this country by a brother, James 
Thorn, who settled in Virginia. I know 
very little of his family, but I think a 
great-grandson of his is Counsel for the 
Southern Railway, with headquarters at 
Washington, D. C. Before going to 
Washington, he was a lawver in Nor- 
folk, Va. 

Children of John Thorn and Ellenor 
Kerr Thorn: 

Mary Thorn, born April 30, 1771. 

Katherine Thorn, born Dec. 3, 1772. 

William Thorn, born Nov. 11, 1774.

grandchildren living in Guilford County. 

Daniel Thorn has three daughters and 
one son still living in Greensboro, N. C, 
Mrs. William Sharp, Mrs. George A. 
Smith, Mrs. Lindsay Stewart, and Mr. 
James Thorn. I only remember that two 
of the children married Gorrells, one a 
widow Gilmer, one a Wiley. 

James Thorn died March 13, 1845. 

Mary Donnell Thorn born July 26, 
1776, died March 5.. 1844. James Thorn

1808, married Miss Mary Taylor of New 
York. He was a Presbyterian minister, 
served as pastor in churches in Virginia, 
Tennessee and Kentucky. Was president 
of Austin College, Texas, for several 
years. At the time of his death was 
president of a female college in Louisi- 
ana. He has two daughters living, Mrs. 
G. A. Walter and Mrs. Pierce, both of 
Hillsboro, Illinois. One son was missing 
about the close of the Civil War; was 
with the Bible House in Chicago when 
last heard from. Rev. Addie E. Thorn 
died suddenly on his way from attending 
the General Assembly during the latter 
part of the War. 

John Robert Thorn, born Oct. 7, 1810, 
married Mary Jane McLean, has three 
children living, Joel J. Thorn of Mis-

Rogers of Long Island 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

It is known from official records that 
William Rogers and his wife, Anna, were 
on Long Island, in Southampton and 
Huntington in 1648 and after. He died 
in Huntington between 1659 and 1667. 
Various statements and claims have been 
made concerning the earlier history of 
this William Rogers. It is asserted that 
he was a son of Thomas Rogers of 
Plymouth, Mass., who came on the May- 
flower in 1620; that he came to Plymouth 
several years after his father arrived; 
that he went to Wether sfield, Conn., from 
Plymouth, and subsequently to Stamford, 
Conn., and Hempstead, L. L, before he 
finally settled in Southampton ; that he 
was not a son of Thomas Rogers, the 
Mayflower pilgrim, but of another 
Thomas Rogers of England ; that he 
came direct to Connecticut from England 
and was" never in Plymouth, Mass. ; that 
he was never in Connecticut, but came 
first to Long Island. In the Connecticut 
colony, 1630-1650, there were several of 
the name — William Rogers — in Wethers- 
field and elsewhere. Recent research 
seems to show that this William Rogers 
of Long Island did not leave England 
until after 1636. 

Where then was the William Rogers 
of Long Island between 1636 and 1648? 
Was he a William Rogers of Connecticut 
and if so, which one? There has been 
plenty of guess work and assumption 



covering these points, but what is now 
wanted is reference to authoritative rec- 
ords. "Tradition," "say-so," "probably," 
"apparently," without much doubt," 
"grandfather used to say that his grand- 
father knew," etc., etc., such evidence is 
worse than worthless. Reliable records 
are wanted and reliable records only. 
Can William Rogers be surely located 
anywhere before he was in Southampton 
in 1648 and can he be positively identified 
with a colonial William Rogers prior to 
that date? H. L. W. R.

EARLY VIRGINIA WILLS 

Abstracts of Recently Discovered Records 
(Transcribed from original sources) 

[Contributed to Genealocy.] 

By William M. Clemens 

The following abstracts of early Virginia wills, have been carefully transcribed 
from the records in Lexington, Rockbridge County, Bedford City in Bedford Coun- 
ty, 'Manasses in Prince William County, Amherst in Amherst County. Leesburg in 
Loudoun County, and Rustburg in Campbell County, Virginia. 

Prince William County was established in 1730, being taken from King 
George and Stafford Counties. Bedford County was established in 1753, being 
taken from Lunenburg County. Loudoun County was established in 1757, being 
taken from Fairfax County. Amherst County was established in 1761. Rock- 
bridge County was established in 1778, being taken from Augusta County. Camp- 
bell County was established in 1784, being taken from Bedford County. 

In many of the Virginia counties the court houses were destroyed by fire dur- 
ing the Civil War and the county records were destroyed, either in whole or in 
part. In Leesburg, Loudoun County, one will book is missing and in Prince William 
County four books, covering a period of twenty years, are nowhere to be found. In 
Rockingham County there are neither wills nor deeds prior to 1865, but here I 
found marriage records and fee books as early as 1774 in a forgotten corner. 

In the following alphabetical list of early Virginia wills, a chronological order 
is preserved in order to show descent or generation, and particular care has been 
taken to follow the quaint, original spelling of surnames as well as forenames, 
occurring in the original records.

Some New England Queries 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

1. William Stark of Stonington, Conn., 
born 1664, died 1730, married Elizabeth 
. Her maiden name and parent- 
age wanted. 

2. Aaron Stark, born 1608, died 1685, 
of Stonington, Conn., or vicinity, had 
supposedly sons Aaron, John and Wil- 
liam and daughters, Margaret and Eliza- 
beth. Any information about Aaron's 
wife, or the wives or husbands of his 
children is desired. 

3. David Cary, son of John, of Bridge- 
water, Mass., moved to Bristol, R. I., and 
there married, Dec. 1687, Elizabeth. Her 
surname and parentage wanted. Their 
children were baptized at the Church of 
Christ, Bristol. 

4. Daniel Pearce of Prudence Island, 
R. I., was twice married. First wife un- 
known, second wife, whom he married, 
Dec. 13, 1703, Elizabeth Tucker or Tabor 
of same place. All information about 
both these wives desired. 

5. Nicholas Spink of North Kingston, 
R. I., died 1733. Married (1) Abigail, 
(2) Sarah. Maiden names of these wives 
desired. 

6. Who was the wife of Nathan Bird- 
sail of Salem, Mass., and Easthampton, 
and Oysterbay, L. L, died about 1698. 
She may have been related to the Mrs. 
Joshua Garlick of Easthampton, who was 
tried for witchcraft in 1657. 

7. Who was the Rebecca Elwell, who 
married John Birdsall of Pawling, N. Y.? 
She died at Harpersfield, N. Y., Oct. 15, 
1806, in her 69th year. 

8. Reuben Reynolds, who died Aug. 3, 
1819, had sons James, born 1771, and 
Israel, born 1782, both of whom are first 
heard of at Kortright, Delaware Co., 
N. Y. Who is this Reuben? He un- 
doubtedly belonged to the Greenwich, 
Conn, family. Whom did he marry, and 
what other children did he have? Any 
information regarding him is much de- 
sired. Also any information regarding a 
Reuben Reynolds of Chatham, N. Y., 



born March 14, 1734-5, at Greenwich, 

who married Hedzibah , of New 

Rochelle, N. Y. They had a son Andrew, 
born 1764, who was an early settler of 
Kortright. This is Reuben's only known 
child, but I believe him to be the Reu- 
ben, father of James and Israel, who died 
1819. I should be very grateful for any 
clue to this family. 

9. Eliab Wilcox, born 1732, married 
Jerusha Spencer, born 1735. He and his 
wife joined the Baptist church at South 
Dover, Duchess Co., N. Y., in 1758. 
Eliab was probably a brother of Elizabeth 
Wilcox of Dover, and Jerusha, a sister 
of Reuben Spencer of Clinton, Duchess 
Co., but both these relationships are sur- 
mise only. The parentage of both Eliab 
and Jerusha are very much desired. 

10. Who were the parents of Chloe 
Sackett of Amenia, Duchess Co., N. Y., 
who June 22, 1784, married Reuben Wil- 
cox of South Dover? 

11. Joseph Shaw married before 1792 
an Agnes, who was probably related in 
some way to Walter and Martha Lock- 
wood of Unionville, Duchess Co., N. Y., 
who also lived in New York City. In 
1827 the Shaws were living in Yates Co., 
N. Y., where Joseph probably died soon 
after. His widow and several of his 
children moved to New London, Ohio. 
Joseph's only known relative aside from 
wife and children was a younger half 
brother John, born 1784, who also settled 
in Yates Co. Any information about 
this Shaw family is greatly desired. 

12. Joseph Woodworth, born 1696, at 
Little Compton, R. I., married there Oct. 
17, 1723, Anna Manchester. Who were 
her parents? 

13. Two Henry Dyers of Lebanon, 
Conn., were married in 1725-1726, one 
at Lebanon to Mary Rice, one at Boston 
to Hannah Holbrook. One Henry lived 
and died in Lebanon, the other after his 
marriage lived at Boston, and died there. 
Can anyone straighten out these two? 
I wish very much to learn the parentage 
of each. They probably both belonged to 



June, 1914. 



(Benealogy

the R. L Dyers. I also desire the parent- 
age of Mary Rice. 

14. Robert Rumsey was at Fairfield, 
Conn., in 1664, where he married Rachel 
Frost. Who were his parents. Also who 
were the wives and husbands of his 
children, especially of Robert. They all 
lived at or near Fairfield. 

15. Information is wanted about the 
Patchen family of Fairfield, Conn., and 
vicinity. Who was the Mary Hubbard, 
who married Jacob Patchen before 1694, 
and who probably had first married some 
Grumman? Whom did Jacob, son of 
Jacob and Mary (Hubbard) Patchen 
marry? He was born about 1701. All 
marriages of the children of Jacob and 
Mary desired. 

16. Who were the parents of the 
Martha Finch who married Dec. 5, or 
30, 1723, Nathan Hubbell. They settled 
at Wilton, Conn. She was born about 
1701. H. L. S.

One Line of the Darling Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

By Carlos Parsons Darling, B. L. 



Dennis 1 Darling, of Braintree and 
Mendon, Mass. (Parentage as yet un- 
known). 

Married in Braintree, Mass., by Peter 
Brackett, J. P., November 3, 1662, to 
Hannah Francis. (Her parentage is not 
established although she may have been 
a daughter of John and Rosa Francis of 
Braintree). 

Dennis and Hannah (Francis) Darl- 
ing had the six following children in 
Braintree, and four in Mendon : Cor- 
nelius, Capt. John, Anson, Sarah, Cor- 
nelius, Hannah, Ebenezer, Daniel, Eliza- 
beth, Benjamin. Dennis 1 Darling died in 
Mendon, Mass., January 25, 1717, age 
77 years. Date of death of Hannah, his 
wife, is unknown. 

II. 

Benjamin 2 Darling, youngest child of 
Dennis 1 and Hannah (Francis) Darling, 
was born in Mendon, Mass., February 11, 
1687. He married in Mendon, June 11, 
1708, Mehitable White, born there Janu- 
ary 22, 1689, daughter of Thomas (3) 
and Mehitable (Thornton) White, and 
grand-daughter of Capt. Joseph (2) and 
Lydia (Rogers) White, and great grand- 
daughter of the first Thomas (1) White 
of Weymouth Mass. 

Mehitable (White) Darling died after 
1730 and was the mother of eleven chil- 
dren. Benjamin Darling married (2), 
in Mendon, Mass., April 17, 1760, Su- 
sanna (Benson) Thayer White, evident- 
ly the widow of same Thayer, also widow 
of Aaron 5 White (Joseph 4 , Joseph 3 , 
Capt. Joseph 2 , Thomas 1 ), and daughter 
of Benoni 3 Benson (Joseph 2 , John 1 ) and 
his first wife Sarah (Thayer) Benson. 

Benjamin 2 Darling died Mendon, 
Mass., May 18, 1772, and is buried in the 
old cemetery at Chestnut Hill, Town of 
Blackstone, Mass. Have no date of 
Susanna's death, but it was after 1770. 



She was the mother of one child. Chil- 
dren of Benjamin Darling by his two 
wives are as follows : Mehitable, De- 
borah, Benjamin, Joseph, Ebenezer, 
Peter, Hannah, Abigail, Samuel, Eliza-

is buried near his father in the cemetery

his death as occurring in 1778, in his 47th 
year, but this is a mistake as the inven- 
tory of his estate was taken January 23, 
1777. His widow, Rachel, married sec- 
ond, February 1, 1787, to James Albee of 
Uxbridge, Mass., widower of her sister

Money in Chancery 

The Paymaster of the Supreme Court 
of Great Britian has published in a special 
supplement to the ''London Gazette" the 
statutory triennial list of dormant funds 
in the various courts, including Chancery, 
King's Bench, Probate and Divorce, and 
the King's Remembrancer, as well as the 
now extinct courts of Common Pleas and 
Exchequer. The supplement runs to 
over 200 pages of names alphabetically 
indexed, and all funds of not less than 
£50 are included. The aggregate 
amount of these funds is about £1,250,- 
000, distributed over more than 3,800 
separate accounts. One-half do not ex- 
ceed £150 in value, and only about one- 
twentieth exceed £1,000. The list should 
be of service to persons desiring informa- 
tion as to the origin of a fund in court, 
and any such person finding reason to be- 
lieve that he may be interested in a par- 
ticular case may apply, in writing only, 
to the Assistant Paymaster-General, 
Royal Courts of Justice, London, who at 
his discretion may supply information 
as to the amount of the fund and the 
date of an order of court known to re- 
late to it. This report shows how false 
and misleading are the claims often made 
in the United States that tnere are mil- 
lions in chancery for certain, alleged 
great estates, like the Lord Baltimore and 
other fabulous legacies.

North Kingston, R. I. . 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I wish to ask "C. R. H." if she has 
much data upon N. Kingston, Rhode Is- 
land. The records of this town were 
destroyed by fire, making search there 
very difficult. 

Lieut. James Greene (2), (John 1) 
died 1728. He (1) married Elizabeth 
, died 1726. 

Who was she? Was she a Jenkins? 
Their son John Greene of Bristol, died 
1752. He married at North Kingston, 

Elizabeth who?

Feb. 9, 1688, at Wethersfield to the

known. He married Elizabeth Crowe, 
daughter of John Crowe. He was a sur- 
veyor of highways 1687, and was made a 
freeman 1658 at Hartford. He bought 
land there 1669. His will was proved 
Oct. 24, 1689. He first appears at Hart- 
ford, March 2, 1653-4, as a minor, and a 
servant to Capt. Cullick of Hartford, and 
was therefore born after the date 1633. 
His second wife was born in 1650. His 
children were William, John, Thomas, 
Abraham and Abigail. Was he a son of 
Abraham Warren of Ipswich, who died 
there 1654? John Warren, his son, died 
at Hartford, July 31, 1722. He married 
Mary , probably about the year 



1689 since he bought land that year. 
Mary, his wife died 1718. Their daugh-

at Hartford, and 1 trri I Be ..in Hills

Early New Jersey Court Records 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Following is a copy of a document 
contained in the record book in the Mon- 
mouth county clerk's office at Freehold, 
N. J. This book contains the records of 
official doings of all kinds in that county 
from 1688 to 1721. 

Here is a copy of the record : 

March 25th, 1701. Monmouth co. 

At a Court of Sessions, held for the 
county of Monmouth, at Middletowne, in 
the county aforesaid, and province of 
East New Jersie. 

Being present: Coll. Andrew Hamil- 
ton, Governor Louis Morris, Samuel 
Leonard, Esqrs. of the Governor's Coun- 
cil; Jedidiah Allen, Samuel Dennis, Jus- 
tices. 

The court being opened, one Moses 
Butterworth, who was accused of piracie, 
and had confessed that he did sail with 
Capt. William Kid in his last voyage, 
when he came from the East Indies and 
went into Boston with him, and was 
bound to make his appearance at this 
court that he might be examined and dis- 
posed of according to his Magisties' 
orders, the said Butterworth was called 
and made his appearance, and when the 
court was examining him one Samuel 
Willet in holden said that the Governor 
and Justices had no authority to hold 
court and he would break it up, and ac- 
cordingly went down stairs to a com- 
pany of men then in arms and sent up 
a drummer, one Thomas Johnson, into 
the court, who beat his drum and several 
of the company came up with their arms 
and clubs which, together with the drum 
continually beating, made such a noise 
(notwithstanding often proclamations 
made to desist and keep the King's 
peace) that the court could not examine 
the prisoner at the bar, and when there 
was, as the Court judged, betwixt thirty 
and forty men come up into the court, 
some with their arms and some with 
clubs, two persons, viz: Benjamin Bor- 
den and Richard Borden, attempted to 
rescue the prisoner at the bar, and did 



take hold on him by the arms and about 
the middle and force him from the bar, 
the constable and under sheriff, by the 
command of the Court, apprehended the 
said Borden, upon which the Justices 
and King's attorney-general of the prov- 
ince then present (after commanding the 
King's peace to be kept, and no heed 
being given thereto) drew their swords 
and' endeavored to retake the prisoners 
and apprehend some of the persons con- 
cerned in the rescue, but was resisted 
and assaulted themselves, and the exam- 
ination of the prisoner torne in pieces, 
and in the scufle both Richard Borden 
and Benjamin Borden were rescued. 

But the endeavors of the Court were 
not effective in retaking the prisoner, for 
he was rescued and carried off and made 
his escape, and the people, viz : 



Capt. Saftine Grover

Attorney-General and secretary and the 
clerk of the court and the under sheriff, 
and kept them under guard, close pris- 
oners from Tuesday, the twenty-fifth of 
March, till the Saturday following, being 
the twenty-ninth of the same month, and 
then released them.

King-LeValley 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 



Who was Sarah 



-, wife of 



Peter Le Valley 1 , the emigrant? When 
were they married ,-when and where were 
they born and when did she die? Peter 
died at Warwich, R. I., 1756. 

Their daughter Marie 2 married about 
1727 a Mr. King, called variously, Mag- 
Ion 1 , Magdalen, Madylane, etc. What 
was his true name? He is said to have 
been born Aug. 23, 1702. The date of 
death on his tombstone resembles 1795 
more closely than 1775. I should like 
very much the correct dates of their birth, 
marriage and death, and the locality. 
Their known sons were 1, John; 2, Sam- 
uel; born Feb. 1745,, at Warwich, 3, 
Paul, born 1751, at Warwich. Samuel's 
son Joel (1 787-1 867j) of Pompey, Onon- 
daga co., N. Y., was a soldier in 1814 of 
the War of 1812. I have this record 
which says he was in a N. H. militia. Is 
this correct? Why N. H. instead of 
N. Y.? 

In Mather's Hist, of the Refugees of 
L. I. 1776, he mentions a William, Samuel 
and a Joel King. Will someone who has 
access to this valuable work please tell 
me what family these three men belonged 
to, and were they related to Samuel 
King 2 of West Greenwich, Rhode Island 
C1745-1829y, son of Maglon 1 , King 1 and 
father of Joel King 3 (1787-1867) of 
Pompey, Onondoga county, New York. 
Did Samuel of R. I. have Revolutionary 
service of record? Did Samuel of L. I. 



have military service of that period? A 
Samuel King, minute man, enlisted in 
Col. Josiah Smith's regt. residence South- 
ampton, L. I., 1776. To what colony did 
he flee? To R. I.? To what family did 
he belong? Did the L. I. family come 
originally from N. Y. as did so many 
Long Island families? Any help on this 
line would be very, very welcome. Are 
the Le Valleys mentioned among other 
Hugeunots in the "Hist, of New Ro- 
chelle, N. Y." and the "Hist of Rye, 
N. Y.?" 

Maglon 1 King and family seem to have 
left Warwich shortly after the birth of 
Paul, 1751, their youngest known son. A 
Henry King of R. I. is thought to be 
another son of Maglon 1 King. W. W. 



Codding-Coddington 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Capt. James Codding of Braintree and 
Taunton "died before 1753 in New York 
State." He married Deborah Thaver 3 of 
Braintree, born Oct. 14, 1691. ' (Na- 
thaniel 2 , Richard 1 .) Was he a son of 
John and Hannah ("(jardner) Codding- 
ton of Braintree? This John died there 
June 1, 1680. The Gardner family lived 
in Newport where I believe this Hannah 
had a brother James living. 

The Braintree vital records give the 
marriage of a "widow Anne Coddington 
of Newport" to Rev. Samuel Niel of 

Braintree, Nov. 22, . Was she the 

mother of Capt. James Codding (ton)? 
Who was she ? Capt. Codding's descend- 
ants have always claimed descent from 
W r illiam Coddington the first governor 
of the Rhode Island plantation, whose 
capital was at Newport, Gov. John Cog- 
geshall being the first governor of the 
Providence plantation. Major Nathaniel 
Coddington 2 born 1653, married Susanna, 
a granddaughter of William and Anne 
Hutchinson. Anne was a nickname for 
both Hannah and Susanna. Who was the 
"widow Anne" and was she the mother of 
Capt. James Codding? W. W.

Pierce 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I am attempting to prove that Pelatiah 
Pierce who came to the Wyoming Valley, 
Penn., shortly after its first settlement 
was a younger son of Pelatiah Pierce, 
who married Ann Cadwell, of Hartford, 
1758. (Edward 3 , Edward 2 , Edward 1 .) 
I have the Cadwell ancestry but would 
like to trace the elder Pelatiah Pierce to 
the emigrant. Who was Pelatiah Pierce 
of Penn., and who was his wife? Can 
"E. P. J." give this? W. W. 



Jennings- Greene 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I wish to know if the Elazabeth- 



, who married Lieut. James 

Greene of North Kingston, R. I., was a 
Greene, and if so, who were her parents? 
Were they from Maiden, Mass. ? There 
were several of the name there at an 
early period. Lieut. James Green (2j 

married Ann , 1727, 

and died at North Kingston, 1728. Can 
"F. P. J." answer tnis? W. W.

Family Records 

The records of every family of early 
American origin constitute a material 
part of the history of the American peo- 
ple. These records are fast disappear- 
ing and the importance of assembling 
them where they can be forever available 
for future consultation is now every- 
where recognized. Send us the history 
of your immediate family with dates and 
places of birth, marriage and death. 
These records will be permanently pre- 
served in the columns of Genealogy and 
will also be placed in the files of our 
Manuscript Library of American History 
and Genealogy.

Wilson- Hoyt 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

I am seeking the family of Mary Wil- 
son, who married Lieut. David Hovt, at 
Hatfield, 1689. He was born April 22, 
1651, at Windsor, Conn. None of the 
Wilsons of Windsor appear to have had 
a Mary that early, and the only Mary 
Wilson I can find of suitable age was the 
one born Nov. 21, 1652, to Henry and 
Mary (Metcalf) Wilson, of Dedham, 
(unless Mary Wilson Hoyt was a 
uiuuw). The two oldest daughters 
were named Mary and Sarah Hoyt, 
Mary Wilson of Dedham had a grand- 
mother Sarah. What became of this 
Mary Wilson? W. W. 

Chapman- Cooke 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

John Oiapman of Salem, first appears 
on record there Dec. 7, 1694, when he 
married first a widow Hanna v (BechefV) 
daughter of William and Margaret en 
Lynn, and widow of Isaac Stearns, who 
died before 1692, and came from Water- 
town. She died Aug. 8, 1700, Salem! He 
secondly married Feb. 13, 1701 at Salem, 
Elizabeth Cook, born April 7, 1676, 
daughter of John Cooke 2 and Mary 
(Buxton) 2 (Anthony) 1 . Henry Cooke 
the emigrant of Salem was bom 1615 in 
Yorkshire and married June 1639 at 
Plymouth, Mass., to Judith, daughter of 



Henry Birdsall. Was Henry a son of 
Francis Cooke by a former wife who 
died in England shortly after his birth, 
as has been thought by some people? 
John Chapman died in Salem, Dec, 1644 
Elizabeth died there 1758. 

Children by the first marriage. 

1. Hannah, born Aug. 14, 1695, died 
Nov. 10, 1713. 

2. Stephen, born Sept. 18, 1697, mar- 
ried Hannah Devereux, May 9, 1727. 

Children by the second marriage.

Rhoades 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Henry Rhoades of Lynn, Mass., is be- 
lieved to have come from Rode, Cheshire, 
England. He was born 1608, and died 
at Lynn, 1703. He married Elizabeth 

:{who was she?}, He was 

a brother of 2?achary Rhoade~s of Provi- 
dence, R. I. The latter was born 1603, 
and married Joanna Arnold. Henry 
Rhoades was a founder of Lynn. His

Who Was George Prince 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

In the old Sunbury cemetery, Sunbury, 
Perm., are the graves of George Prince 
and his wife Mary. George Prince, died 
Jan. 25, "1874, aged 82 years. Mary, his 
wife, died Jan. 9, 1872, aged 80 years. 
Mr. Prince was prominent in Masonic 
lodge affairs and claimed to be an illegiti- 
mate son of King George IV., of Great 
Britain. According to his tomb, he was 
born in 1792. King George married ( 1 ) 
a Mrs. Fitzherbert, in 1784, and (2) his 
cousin Caroline in 1795, from whom he 
was later divorced. W. M. C. 



Belden-Elderkin 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

The Belden Genealogy and Hinman's 
Puritan Settlers of Conn., both give 

Samuel 2 and Mary ( ) as 

the parents of the Samuel 3 who was 
born at Wethersfield. Stile's Hist, of 
Wethersfield assigns him instead to John 
Belden 2 and Lydia (Standish). This 
couple also had a Samuel whom the first 
two authorities say was born Jan. 3, 
1665. I would like correct data as to 
the parents of the Samuel Belden 3 who 
married Hannah Elderkin, Jan. 14, 1685. 
Were her parents John Elderkin 1 and 
Elizabeth (Drake) Gaylord. The latter 
couple were married March 1, 1660, and 
Hannah Elderkin seems to have been 
born after that date. I would also like 
the correct dates of birth of Samuel Bel- 
den 3 and Hannah (Elderkin). He died 
at Wethersfield, Dec. 27, 1733. (ae— 

? She died there Jan. 20, 1742, 

( ae ?). Who was Mary 

, who married Samuel Bel- 
den 2 ? Who was Lydia (Standish) who 
married John Belden 2 ? That she was 
not a daughter of Thomas 1 of Wethers- 
field seems probable from his will. Any 
other vital dates or information on this 
topic greatly desired. W. W.
